Making crockpot stew tomorrow

gotta get up early for prep. Not sure if I should brown the beef first.

Bought a Campbell's brand stew sauce this time. I just couldn't get the flour right consistency-wise.

3. Oh, darn..you changed it.

I was looking forward to reading an interesting new recipe..crackpot stew.

I always brown the beef first. I think it adds a ton of flavor.

5. I usually brown the beef... not sure it's necessary with beef stew.

But it might release a bit more flavor?

I've been using those prepared sauces too-- easier, and they can be tasty. There's one Thai Curry sauce that's great on chicken.

Are you putting all the veggies in early?

8. I am I don't use potatoes

I don't like the consistency. Yes, I will put them in early. We're into carrots big time, in this household.

13. I switched from potatoes in stew too. More work but

Make mashed and pour stew over. So much better.

9. I'll be right over to sample it!



Sounds delicious! I'd brown the meat a bit, if able to do so.

10. I coat the stew meat in flour then quick cook 2minutes in skillet then into the crockpot

One can whole tomatoes, carrots, celery, onion and garlic ( I blend onion and garlic in food processor before adding in) salt and pepper to taste buds. Also add small potatoes. Also add a bay leaf.

Writing this I realize I havenít made stew in awhile. Might do next week.
